Stop reading reviews of tattoo shops. Get in your car, on the bus, on your bike, have your mom drive you -- and get in here. This is the spot.
I work in the neighborhood and stopped in to look around (and avoid going back to work). Seriously, it was like I was in another town - a town where people actually care about customers, a town where people greet you and shake your hand, and introduce themselves. Amazing. If you have spent any time in LA, you know this is practically unheard of. Todd did the introductions and thus Todd did my tattoo, which is lovely and crazy beautiful. The shop is extremely clean, very friendly, and most importantly, filled with great artists. Each book I looked through had fantastic pieces. I have told anyone who I know has a tattoo or wants a tattoo or looks like they need a tattoo to go to Timeless.
